Task 26
Cost of Wind Energy

All Tasks publish reports or presentations from various meetings and other research during the Task's research time frame. After a task has finished its work these reports and presentations become part of the public record and are made available to the general public. Other ongoing research waits a year until the reports and presentations are made available to the public. The release of information is sporadic so check back often.
